    I'm having all on getting the numbers for the more popular Lupo! 😝 Designing the artwork, making another set of tools and getting them produced for a handful of people just isn't cost effective I'm afraid.

    As much as I do love ghetto fixing stuff, I think I'd probably just replace the hose flange.

    Oddly enough, i like yank chocolate (no innuendo please!). Reeses peanut butter cups. Mmmmm. strange rules in places like arizona. You can have a gun on your passenger seat, but any sign of a kinder egg, you'll be arrested!

    Welcome to club lupo SDI and Gti are the best Lupos, so good call. never seen one with ABS, but I'm sure it was an option. only suggestion is to disable the egr system. pedal creak could be pedal box. They do creak just before they let go. The rest position of the pedal is the give away- if going or gone, it's lower than the brake pedal at rest. check gearbox. Flush and refill. lube gear linkages. not a lot else really. Very reliable, economical car.
  9. That hose flange costs pennies- like £3 from ECP or someone. But you can ghetto fix it ( @Skezza 's favourite method) using some stixall. Clean it well and dry before you do it though... whirring could be leaves in the alternator or a rattly loose cam belt cover. Usually something plastic in the engine bay? It's worth tracking it down though just in case something potentially serious.

    No I was thinking more along political lines but we won't go there on this site. Off limits I believe.

    Hi all, lurked for ages but finally pulled the trigger! Been wanting an SDI for quite a while and the right one popped up less than 3 miles from home last week! Went to view in the dark after work and decided it was good enough for what I needed. Red 04 plate SDI S with around 170k on the clock, full service history with many stamps and cambelt/water pump done last year. Drives really well and is totally standard, couple of issues such as creaking clutch pedal.. I'm assuming pedal box, do VW still cover (or partially cover) this job under warranty? Will probably change all the braking components and fit some coilovers and perhaps change wheels (wouldn't mind some banded steels). Other then that it's going to remain pretty standard as it's the daily mile muncher whilst my S3 sits on the driveway. Couple questions, how can I tell if it has ABS? And does anyone know of any insurance companies that will mirror my no claims discount onto the lupo? I seem to be getting quotes for more than the S3! And that's stage 2+ declared! Will try to get some photos up soon. Thanks

    Well - there are some other indicators beside the size of those manuals... 😆

    Oh! And one more question, is the steering hydraulic or EPAS?

    Great, thanks everyone for their suggestions! I had originally thought it was a head gasket failure until i learned about those little rubber rings, hell i may even give fixing it a go, any hints/tips? Furthermore, I’d like to learn more about the car - is it just me or is the bonnet release really really stiff, so much so the handle has actually come off a bunch?! Finally, im hearing a slight whirring noise when revving the engine slightly, it comes and goes and sounds like morse code in terms of the pattern, any ideas? Its not a belt i don’t think

    Ok, enough of this carp. I can't stand senators. Ugliest modern era car by a mile. Give me something like a 750iL E38 please. Proper car.

    No sunroof though. Poverty spec.
  19. Also the guy did keep the revs very low at all times when driving it - he did offer me a drive and I declined but it did make me wonder about the clutch so definitely worth checking if you go see it
  20. Good bits: Good service history up to about 3 years ago, main dealer & a local place. Then the guy serviced it himself & kept invoices / wrote down what he'd done - no issues there. Start and drove well and held temperature no problem, new tires, discs, pads, alternator, battery, exhaust. Xenons fine. All the aluminium panels are present (tested with magnet) Not so good bits: Milage is 150 not 140 as advertised, MOT shows brake hoses & CV boots need replacing soon. Mechanically: window regulator needs replacing, remote central locking couldn't be demonstrated as fob battery low (not a concern if that is the issue but impossible to demonstrate the system worked), only one key present, intake was split and taped up. CD player broken,. Cosmetically I am used to mint cars and whilst this wasn't terrible it was definitely not great either - I did ask before driving 3 hour round trip about paint bubbling and he said it was clear but the roof rail on driver side was bad, at least the size of a cigarette pack all blistered up, made me wonder how bad under the paint. Minimum would be a roof respray and I would wonder how deep the corrosion would go once rubbed back. Then 2 alloys were kerbed - not too bad. The drivers door was badly marked all along the edge, the front bumper has a bad scuff that you can see in the photo, then either the rear bumper or the rear quarter (can't remember) has a patch of missing paint the size of a 50p coin that has been repaired with touch in. The front wheel arches on the edge that faces the wheel, have lots of tiny marks that look like the start of blisters. Rear bumper had a smaller scratch on. Interior was OK but the door cards showed lots of use - looked tired I think it needs a full respray but it is debatable whether that is worth it on a £2500 car when minters are available for little more with less miles. HOWEVER - if you wanted a car to drive about in and didn't care about a few marks, it is good mechanically however the roof needs doing now IMO. Add to this that it is the 5 speed, it doesn't do it for me. It's a car for someone with a / access to a bodyshop

    Nah, where the 4 police tracker antennae fit.... but given the age, lots of additional ventilation too. Helps rid the condensation in this cold weather.
  22. What was the craic with that one?

    Those rusty pinholes that always appear in them?
  24. Went and had a look at this car, the search continues

    I might have, especially with fluorescent jam sandwich stripes... very comfy car. The 4 little roof holes are annoying though.
